This talk will focus on the work of the Virginia Tech Libraries’ linked data interest group. Formed in November 2020, the purpose of this group is to provide a space to discuss linked data, to encourage learning and to experiment. Participants come from a variety of library units, including scholarly communications, digital collections, and special collections and archives. We have focused on low-stakes, low-barrier opportunities to increase our skills and experience with linked data technologies. Our projects have focused on ways to “mainstream” linked data in pre-existing library workflows, both as a way to improve the quality of library metadata and as a way to incrementally introduce new tools and practices to our colleagues.
